There are many changes happening in my life and most are very positive.   With that being said, sadly, I am hanging up my captain’s hat and selling the boat.  Monday, September 17th of this year was a difficult day for me as it marked the last day that Take Five will be our summer home. After much thought and careful consideration and after 16 years of ownership, we have decided to sell her and start considering options for life moving forward. She’s currently being stored in Sturgeon Bay.

It’s hard for me to believe that she has been a part of our family for nearly a third of my life and some of my children never remember a time in their lives without her. We spent many wonderful summers cruising the Great Lakes and seeing the Midwest from a perspective that most never have the chance to experience and for that I am very grateful. This is a long slideshow (11 minutes), but it gives you a taste of the fun we had.  Thanks to all the friends and family that helped form all the great times we had.

Another fun video of us preparing Take Five for the Venetian Boat Parade in Sheboygan, WI.
